The team at Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow have been showcasing how they go above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to their residents’ day to day lives.
Now that spring is just around the corner, Gareth Jenks, the Dementia Champion in the home has begun his gardening therapy club.
Katy Jenks, Home Manager, explained: “Gardening is an activity that a lot of our residents enjoy. By engaging in this activity not only do they have a sense of well-being as they are able to continue a hobby, but it gives them a sense of pride in their home as well. The residents have all got together and discussed the plans for the garden. Watch this space!”
The home also welcomed Tim Hammond, the CEO for Four Seasons Health Care as he presented two member of the team – Amanda Campbell and Elizabeth Tait - with awards commending them for their care and kindness.
The nomination for Amanda read: “Amanda is a phenomenal carer and has been at Campsie View for 15 years or so now. She has a heart of gold. Nothing is too much trouble for her. The relationship she has with the residents is amazing and I think she should be recognised for all of her hard work and dedication.”
The nomination for Elizabeth read: “Liz is kind and caring to all residents in her care. Nothing is too much bother to her. She makes sure they have what they need to make their life happier.”
Katy said: “I’m very proud of the team here, they regularly go the extra mile to make a difference to the residents they care for. These two awards showcase this. Well done Amanda and Elizabeth! These awards are very well deserved.”
A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of their care homes. An internal prize, staff are nominated for an award by either residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.
